Aeron is one of the best themes for BlackBerry from what I have seen, and I'm not joking. This is the theme for you.
It gives you a dashboard like panel in your home screen where you can place apps and shortcuts. You can then launch these apps by just tapping on these icons. If you have a physical keyboard, you can also use the theme's hotkeys to launch these shortcuts. Very nice app with good graphics.

This theme is so simple and so classy that you can't help not to install it.You can buy the Aeron theme for $6.99 for your BlackBerry phone from here.
